The Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund (VGIF) provides small grants for grassroots projects that empower women and girls in developing countries.

It supports women’s organizations based outside of the United States by providing small grants for an array of community needs up to $7,500 USD.

What VGIF supports:

  • Community development
  • Health and nutritional support
  • Literacy and leadership training
  • Educational seminars and workshops
  • Women’s human rights
  • Organizations that are governed and directed by women.

    Small Grants for Women - VGIF does not consider requests for the following:

  • Individual scholarships and tuition
  • Political organizations
  • Religious groups unless the proposed project contributes to the general good of the community
  • The construction of permanent buildings or the purchase of land
  • Salaries for board members and permanent staff but may include stipends/honoraria for external resource people/trainers.

    Small Grants for Women Application

    All interested applicants must complete a Letter of Intent (LOI). VGIF does not accept unsolicited LOIs or full proposals. The LOI process opens in May.

    At that time you will have to create an account, then complete and submit your LOI electronically.

    After LOIs are reviewed, your organization may or may not be invited to move forward in our funding process, with the completion of our full application.

  • The Letter of Intent must be submitted by a non-profit, non-political organization.
  • The proposal addresses the empowerment of women and girls and will lead to action and sustainable change in the community.
  • The proposal clearly reflects the participation of the community/target group in its development and design.
  • The project addresses sustainability after VGIF funding with continued involvement in the larger community.
  • Women are well represented in the leadership, staff and management of the organization and project.
  • The organization can demonstrate its ability to manage resources and funding from external sources.
  • The Letter of Intent provides reliable email addresses as well as phone numbers.
  • The proposal must present a true budget with a clear explanation of all items. The budget amount requested from VGIF must not exceed $7,500 USD.
  • Other sponsors or potential funding for this project must be clearly identified.
  • The timeline of activities is realistic and achievable and the project can begin upon the awarding of grants by VGIF in mid-May.
